Meet our Activities Coordinator, Deborah Peacock

My name is Deborah Peacock and I am the Activities Coordinator at Hundens Park. I am responsible for arranging meaningful activities for all of our residents based upon their likes and interests. My favourite part of my job is sharing fun times with our residents and their families together with staff and visitors. I thoroughly enjoy finding out about the resident’s hobbies/interests so we can share the good times together. Outside of work I have many past times including photography, walking, gardening, travel and wildlife.

Activities at Hundens Park

Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can

Elf Day

Hundens Park hosted a gang of Santa’s elfs to raise much-needed funds for the Alzheimer's Society. Staff and residents dressed up as Santa’s little helpers for the day and a raffle and donations raised a total of £128.80. 

We were also joined by our friends from Eastbourne Pre-School. The children dressed up for the occasion and wore their handmade elf ears. Children performed a wonderful concert and donated a beautiful festive hamper to residents, who presented the kids with gifts in return.

Thank you to everyone who showed their support.

Christmas Donations

On 4th December, Hundens Park gratefully received a kind donation from Tesco's Bishop Auckland store.

Donations have been flooding into the store over the last 2 weeks, following a challenge from one kind shopper, which went viral over the internet. A total of 9 tons of food, toiletries and Christmas gifts has been donated to this Tesco store alone, and Hundens Park was one of many beneficiaries. 

Community champion for the store, John Bailey, met with staff and residents and discussed the great benefits of community partnership, such as ensuring that vulnerable people are supported through the winter period.

Ukulele Tunes

One resident had expressed a desire to hear a ukulele player and her dream came true when Jacob, our General Manager’s son – who was celebrating his birthday – provided a wonderful selection of songs.

There was singing and dancing and even a short lesson on how to play. We look forward to Jacob's return in the future.
